    I was trying to install iOS 12 on my old iPhone 6s plus.

    I took the Sim out when I upgraded to the iPhone 8 last year.

    I wanted to play with iOS 12 on my old device.

    It will not even start the install with no Sim installed ....

    Any ideas or am I out of luck?

    You need a SIM - any sim. You can use an old inactive SIM you have lying around, or swap the SIM from your 8 into the 6s for activation. You can take the SIM out after you're past the activation screen.

    No offense but sounds like you should wait.
